‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s prophecy – American Indian ways of thinking & being as a form of holistic illumination

‘Abdu’l-Bahá stated, “Attach great importance to the indigenous population of America… should they be educated and guided, there can be no doubt that they will become so illumined as to enlighten the whole world...” And also, “Undoubtedly in those regions [the Americas] the Call of God must have been raised in ancient times...” Native spiritual ways of thinking and being that arose from the Call of God in the ancient Americas (and carried down through time by Native peoples), if now guided by Bahá’u’lláh, can act as a lamp of enlightenment to illuminate the path towards oneness for all peoples.
